what is the microdelivery collection?

philosophy introduced the microdelivery in 2002. a revolutionary concept, it was the first in-home version of a microdermabrasion procedure combined with the benefits of a chemical peel.

since that time, the microdelivery family of peels has expanded to include a peel for every skin concern: the microdelivery resurfacing peel for uneven texture, enlarged pores and fine lines; the microdelivery triple-acid brightening peel for discoloration; the microdelivery overnight anti-aging peel for wrinkles, firmness and pores; the microdelivery daily exfoliating facial wash—a daily cleansing mini-peel; and our newest innovation, the microdelivery detoxifying oxygen peel for stressed skin, dullness and clogged pores.

why a peel?

regular exfoliation is like a magic wand. when you slough away dry, dead cells—poof! your skin instantly has a smoother texture and brighter tone―large pores and fine lines practically become invisible. this is called cell turnover which skin normally does every 28 days on its own. but as we age, the natural rejuvenation process slows down. therefore, peels are necessary, not optional, to maximize exfoliation, which also helps the active ingredients in your other skin-care products penetrate more deeply and work better.

why philosophy peels?

while there are many scrubs, puffs and brushes available on the market, there’s really only one method that delivers the kind of radiant results that rival a professional resurfacing treatment. and that’s where philosophy’s the microdelivery peel collection comes in.

unlike traditional exfoliation (scrubs) where physical exfoliators like micro-crystals or beads are used to remove dead surface cells, philosophy peels employ chemical exfoliators like ahas and bhas to gently disrupt the bonds between dead skin cells to reveal the new, smoother skin underneath. this helps reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles, skin discolorations, enlarged pores and imperfections, and are a gentler solution even for sensitive skin.

watch now to see how

the new microdelivery detoxifying peel combines the purifying benefits of a detoxifying mask with the brightening benefits of an oxygen facial.

it works in two ways

1. activated charcoal absorbs and draws out pore-clogging dirt, impurities and toxins to purify skin without stripping it of moisture.

2. our oxygenating complex, featuring exclusive barley leaf extract (rich in chlorophyll), delivers a shot of fresh oxygen to the skin to help energize and brighten skin.
